The president of Dayton played his fiddle while his university literally burned.

Nothing like crowd surfing among those destroying your campus. Deadspin with more.


But that's not about a judge deciding sex between two teachers in a classroom is just fine?? Julia Marsh and Georgett Roberts write;


“The penalty of termination is shockingly disproportionate,” said the ruling, which noted that “engagement in what appeared to be consensual sexual conduct with an adult colleague is not in and of itself criminal or otherwise improper.”

And at least the school-room romp didn’t involve minors, the Appellate Division judges added.

“Indeed, lesser penalties have been imposed where a teacher had an ongoing relationship or engaged in inappropriate behavior with a student,” the decision says.


Ok, as you can see in the Post, the teachers were pretty hot. Nevertheless...

You're no longer to suspend students who are unruly because they are disproportionately black.

Earlier this year, the Obama administration issued guidance encouraging schools to abandon what it described as overly zealous discipline policies that send students to court instead of the principal's office. But even before the announcement, school districts have been adjusting policies that disproportionately affect minority students.

Overall, the data show that black students of all ages are suspended and expelled at a rate that's three times higher than that of white children. Even as boys receive more than two-thirds of suspensions, black girls are suspended at higher rates than girls of any other race or most boys.

The data doesn't explain why the disparities exist or why the students were suspended.
